Sounds like a driver problem. Maybe you can remove the
USB device from the control panel and let windows find it
again.

Option 2 - check the usb card manufacturers card web site for
an updated driver and try that.

Like r-k said, update the driver if possible.  Check the device manager for hardware conflicts.  Try a different PCI slot.  That will sometimes do the trick.
